Elton Brings Red Piano to Limerick
Elton John returns to Ireland next June for an open air date in Limerick’s newly redeveloped Thomond Park rugby stadium.
Elton John plays Thomond Park stadium in Limerick on June 6.
Tickets priced between €79.25 and €116.25 are on sale Monday November 10 at 9am.
“We’re delighted to be running a big, outdoor gig in Limerick for the first time,” enthuses promoter Peter Aiken. “The new Thomond Park is a really spectacular venue, which can comfortably hold 25,000 people. We’ve staged all of Elton’s recent Irish gigs from Stormont Castle to Croke Park, and he always puts on a spectacular show.”
Fans will be treated to the touring version of John’s $3 million Red Piano extravaganza, which has grossed $140m during its three-year, 200 show Las Vegas Caesar’s Palace residency.
Also out this week is a Red Piano three-disc DVD/CD and Blue-ray featuring such Dwight-sian classics as ‘Benny & The Jets’, ‘Philadelphia Freedom’, ‘Tiny Dancer’, ‘Saturday Nights Alright For Fighting’, ‘Candle In The Wind’, ‘Believe’ and ‘Rocket Man’.
